My husband and I came for the weekend and enjoyed the chance to get away together. The Inn was comfortable and cozy, located on the edge of the small artsy town of Idyllwild. We liked the hammocks, the chicken coop on the property, and the path along the stream that led into town. The main house is open 24/7 and... More

Disappointed with the lack of enthusiasm from the owners. We felt like a number, not a guest. I would rather give my money to someone who appreciates it and is warm and welcoming. Place needs a good cleaning outside, quite unkept with lots of spider webs everywhere and dust on everything, overgrown weeds. It's like they just don't care anymore... More

Stayed here for two nights with my mother, it was divine! The two owners are very nice and accomodating hosts and their guesthouse is simply gorgeous! We felt right at home here, the decor is just beautiful, many different art pieces from different cultures and nations. We had the Evergreen room and it was a nice size room with a... More

and got the reservation (special discount) for a birthday present. The facility is large for a bed and breakfast with a big common area packed with curios, antiques and knick-nacks and a library area. It was fun to look at the fancy chickens out back and eat their fresh eggs. Our stay was comfortable and quiet. The breakfast was very... More

Idyllwild is a beautiful little town nestled in the San Jacinto Mountain Range. Wonderful small artist's colony. A place for active folks of all ages. Excellent hiking. We decided to travel here to escape LA and the daily craziness. We chose the Strawberry Creek Inn due to the reports of the wonderful breakfasts and its proximity to Strawberry Creek and... More

Here are the good points: lovely old house, fine furnishings, very clean, friendly & social people, comfy bed, great location in town, easy parking. The flipside: tiny shower, creaky floors, you get to hear all your neighbor's business through thin walls (yep, uh oh!), just OK breakfast, no A/C, and the world's tiniest TV. In some countries this would be... More

My husband and I live a fast-paced life and my husband, in particular, works 70+ hours a week so getting "away" is a necessity for us. We went to the Strawberry Creek Inn for a weekday get-a-way and fell in absolute love with Strawberry Creek Inn!! I loved the location, I loved the people, I loved the town. The hammocks... More

Would probably try another place next time (if we ever go back to Idyllwild). Place is nice, Santa Fe room was small but pleasant, although you might want to bring your own pillows if you are used to soft & fluffy under your head at night. Bed was also hard and if that was a "queen", then I'm Queen Latifah!... More

My husband and I came to stay a couple nights the night after we got married. We just got home from our getaway and we're still reeling about how perfect this Bed & Breakfast was. It was SO wonderful. From the second you drive up you can feel the energy of this haven pulling you in. The entire property is... More

I attended a writing workshop here and am dying to go back. Rodney and Ian are fabulous hosts who have created this cozy and comfortable Inn in an idyllic setting. The food was fabulous (but don't plan to stick to your diet). My room was simple yet comfortable and homey. I stayed in the Nancy room. The mattress is great,... More
